Anne-of-Green-Gables-20th-Anniversary-Collectors-EditionIf you liked the Anne series from Lucy M. Montgomery, chances are that you will love the delightful Canadian miniseries from Kevin Sullivan. The series is amazing, especially the first movie of the trilogy which is worth 5 stars all by itself. This is a classic adaption of the beloved novel and every fan of AoGG should pick up the collectors edition. This collector’s edition includes not only the trilogy (AoGG, Anne… The Sequel, and Anne… The Continuing story), but two extra DVDs featuring 2 documentaries with cast and crew interviews, several missing scenes and lost footage, and the episode that was omitted from the original aired series (probably because it was too sad!!) “Marilla Cuthbert’s Death.” Even if you already have the AoGG version taped on VHS, it is worth buying the complete trilogy collector’s edition just because it is totally worth the additional expenditure.

The complete box set of AoGG is a MUST-HAVE. It is imperative for any Anne fan to own one of these. The 8 volumes series is an unforgettable is probably one of the most enjoyable children’s literature of all time available. This series of books goes through the life of Anne Shirley, an imaginative red-haired orphan adopted by siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert from Green Gables, in Avonlea. You will live her adventures from her early teens, when she first arrives in Avonlea, goes through her adult life and the last book tells the story of her daughter, Rilla. The complete collection include the 8 popular volumes “Anne of Green Gables”, “Anne of the Island”, “Anne of Avonlea”, “Anne of Windy Poplars”, “Anne’s House of Dreams”, “Anne of Ingleside”, “Rainbow Valley”, “Rilla of Ingleside.

If you are looking for a real classic, the 100th Anniversary Edition is what you are looking for : the republished original work, including the original cover art of the beloved book from LMM. Interestingly, this original republished version also contains the typos and the obvious lack of proofreading the book suffered from the fact that publishers did not expect in any way the book to do so well. However, this is not a book for kids (you probably don’t want them to read the typos!), but rather a great book for a fan or a collector. So maybe this Christmas, treat yourself or someone you love with this glimpse of the real Anne’s first publication from 100 years ago!

Because some people did not care for the last movie of the trilogy (Anne… The Continuing Story), which received mixed reviews. AoGG DVD (1986) & its Sequel are, however, two must-have DVDs in you DVD collection.

.

Lucy Maud Montgomery- The Gift of WingsIf you are a big fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery and her novels, make sure to buy a copy of “Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Gift of Wings” by Mary Rubio. This biography is probably one of the best biography written about LLM, including Lucy’s own journal. And this is no surprise as Mary Rubio, a well-known scholar, has spent over two decades researching Montgomery’s life. “Lucy Maud Montgomery: The Gift of Wings” is a comprehensive and penetrating picture of the Canadian literary icon.

This video game trivia is a fun game to own and to share over a get together with some girlfriends or with your kids. All you need to play is a DVD player, a pen and great spirit!

AoGG – 2010 Mini Wall Calendar. Fun with amazing PEI photographies.

annotedIf you are contemplating the idea of visiting Prince-Edward-Island, “The Annotated AoGG” is a must read. This great books features tons of interesting footnotes depicting pretty much all of the literary reference and allusion, including the people and different places. Songs, stories, poems, geography, pretty much everything is referred to in the book is annotated. The book is not only about scholarly demonstration, but is also great to bring the understanding of PEI to a new level. Learn where you can find the “Lovers Lane” or the “Lake of Shinning Waters” and make your trip to PEI and unforgettable trip.

The Selected Journals of LMMLooking for a fascinating look into Lucy Maud Montgomery’s early years? Then pick up “The Selected Journals of L.M. Montgomery”. This book is followed by two other great volumes. As an Anne fan, LMM’s journal will give even more depth to the character of AoGG as well as the author herself. The book gives an insightful journey into the author’s life and her work. Love life, her feelings about her books, you will simply no be able to put the book down until you read the very last page.

Anne of Green Gables the animated vol.3The cartoon Anne – Journey to Green Gables is a prequel to the so well-known movies from Kevin Sulllivan. In this movie, Anne Shirley dreams of a real family.

Clo Stewart 03 October 2009
I have always been a fan of Lucy Maud Montgomery books as well as the Kevin Sullivan movies. Whether it was Anne of Green Gables, its sequel or Road to Avonlea, I have always been pleased with what Kevin Sullivan has achieved. However, this last movie of the trilogy is not at all what I expected. I am somewhat disappointed. While the movie is okay, somewhat decent, I did not think it was very representative of any of the books nor did it pictured Anne Shirley as how she should be. Kevin Sullivan took too much liberty with the storyline and I would definitely not call it a “continuing story”. This movie is not recommended for people who have read the book and have high expectations of the movie.

My husband and myself have watched the movie on TV, when it first aired. Our opinions were mixed. Because I am a fervent fan of Anne of Green Gables and have read every single book, my expectations were totally different, and I was shocked at the dissemblance between the movie and any of the book. However, my husband, who hasn’t read any of the book did find the movie quite interesting and decent. Sadly, a movie that I recommend for non Anne Shirley fans, and to complete your trilogy!

This movie was okay. Not a 5 stars, but not as bad as everyone depicts it to be. It sure does not follow the books, but the storyline is fine. A movie I recommend for entertainment, but don’t expect to recognize any parts from the books, there are none.
